Wu-Tang Clan's Method Man recently revealed plans to make a collaboration project alongside Raekwon and Ghostface Killah.
While he said the album is merely an idea at the moment, Mef said he would likely base his decision on the fans' perception.
"It's in discussion right now," Mef said in an interview. "I don't want to say it's written in stone, but it's in discussion. I want some feedback from the fans to see how they would take that. RZA produced tracks, some other outside producers, of course, and we gonna have Wu-Tang members on the album, but it'll be a Rae, Ghost and Meth album...I like doing shows with brothers instead of just doing them by myself...I like to have a crowd around. And have that input to make the project better." (MTV)
Raekwon recently hinted at the possibility of dropping more albums before the end of 2009.
"Peace yall just seen the last visual of the Walk wit me video and its classic," he wrote via Twitter yesterday (July 6). "will be giving ya a teaser real soon! In the booth just recording some new records ya know i might drop 3lps before this yrs out i got to catch up But its bout OB4CL2 RIGHT NOW! Im just putting myself back where i belong! And that on Top! Yea but who heard bout that Mef, GHOST & RAE ALBUM, wht ya think bout that!" (Raekwon's Twitter)
Ghost is currently prepping the release of his next album, The Wizard of Poetry.
"I know that I switched my game around on this album right here because it's an R&B album," Ghost said in an interview. "My fans are more or less hip-hop albums. But I wouldn't be mad because I'm doing me, you know what I mean? And this is what I do. But I bet you one thing, I bet that whoever do like R&B, they gonna respect my work because it's not a bullsh*t piece of work. I didn't just put this sh*t together to where it just sounds like 'Oh aight' But nah, if you understand music and love music, then you gonna respect what the f*ck is going on right now." (Rap Radar)
In addition to music, M-e-t-h-o-d Man is also hitting the big screen alongside Ne-Yo.
"It's a movie called Red Tails produced by George Lucas, directed by Anthony Hemingway," Mef joking said in an interview. "We got Tristan Wilds, another Staten Island dude, we proud of my dude too. He's from 'The Wire,' he played 'Michael' on 'The Wire.' And we got Nate Parker, I think, like the new Denzel [Washington] black dude and stuff....We got Mekhi Phifer...They don't let n*ggas that smoke weed fly planes. I'm one of the mechanics. Matter fact, my character and Andre Royo...his character plays the guy in charge of all the mechanics. And yes, I do got lines. More than seven lines." (Radio Planet TV)
